The Doges Palace "Palazzo Ducale" is a magnificent combination of Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance architecture, the centre of the Venetian Empire and the seat of the Venetian Government. It was once the residence of the Doge, the elected ruler of the city. 

The tour starts between the two columns by the waterfront in Saint mark's Square (look for the orange umbrella). When on a cruise to Venice, you have a lot of transportation option from the cruise port to the center of Venice.

Listen to our informative guide as you pass through its lavish chambers, which display masterpieces by Tintoretto, Titian, Veronese and Bellini.

Hear about the different roles played by the Doge and his counsellors, be entertained by our informative guide and learn about the history of the Venetian legends as you walk through the eerie, narrow passageways towards the prison cells whilst learning about the prisoners and of course, Casanova, perhaps Venice's most famous and intriguing escapee.

If you wish to spend more time inside the Doge's Palace independently after the tour your museum pass will allow you to do so.
